Indianapolis-based Indiana Sports Corp. has assumed leadership of Sports Indiana, the nonprofit state association for sports tourism organizations. The association has also undergone a name change to Team Indiana.
Its mission is to promote sports tourism and positive economic development statewide through a variety of actions, programs, and efforts to attract and encourage the hosting of sporting events in Indiana.
Team Indiana members represent more than 20 destinations in the Hoosier state.
“Indiana Sports Corp is proud to lead the strategic direction of Team Indiana with help from all of our statewide partners,” said Ryan Vaughn, president of Indiana Sports Corp. “The formation of Team Indiana increases sustainability for statewide sports tourism while providing best practices, collaborative opportunities, and funding for statewide events and initiatives.”
Vaughn says all former members of Sports Indiana are now represented through the formation of Team Indiana, with operational and financial management run by Indiana Sports Corp.
Vaughn will explain what the change means with Around Indiana Reporter Mary-Rachel Redman on this weekend’s edition of Inside INdiana Business Television with Gerry Dick.
